4 Great Haircuts for Oval-Shaped Faces

If you have an oval face, you’re in luck!

You can select almost any hairstyle that suits your hair’s texture and look great. You don’t have to battle some of the natural features of your face shape that other women do.

This gives you a lot of versatility in your style, letting you play around with different lengths and cuts.

Some things to remember before choosing a hairstyle:

  1. If it’s been a few years since you’ve changed up you style, consider an update. What was once in may no longer be considered stylish.
  2. Don’t fight your natural hair texture. If you’ve got wavy or curly hair, styles that require lots of chunky layers and straight hair aren’t going to work for you without a lot of time and styling product.
  3. Pick a style that suits your personality and lifestyle. If you’re a wash-and-go kind of person, something that requires a daily blowout is not going to be practical.

Here are 4 great haircuts for oval-faced ladies looking to change things up:

Pixie Cut

If you’re dying to go short, a pixie cut may be right for you.

Pixies look great on women of all ages, but they’re especially flattering if you have thick, wavy hair. This style is great if you like to change things up a little bit, as you can style it to look more relaxed or add some product to make it a little more funky.

If you’re very tall, a pixie cut may not be your best style choice. Think of something a little longer to help balance out your height.

Long Layers

Long layers frame your face, and you can cut them different lengths to highlight different facial features.

This style works great for most hair types, styled curly for those with curly hair or straight for those with straight hair.

If you want some length, consider cutting the hair at the back of your head longer than the hair at the front to avoid weighing down your face.


Bobs look great on women of all ages and all hair textures, though those with more fine-textured hair will benefit more from this style than a longer cut.

Curly, straight, or anything in between can be made to look flattering, and you can add any sort of bangs you’d like to change things up a bit. 

If you want to test out a slightly longer hairstyle without fully committing to growing your hair out, consider a long bob.

Long Hair with Side-Swept Bangs

If you’ve got hair with a thicker texture, especially if you have hair that creates big waves, a longer style with side-swept bangs may be for you.

The length shows off those gorgeous waves – or even curls for those with hair that tends toward the tighter ringlets – and the bangs highlight the face without cutting it off at the eyebrows like blunt bangs would.
